We started the day at Narcisi Winery outside of Pittsburgh. The venue is so beautiful and exceeded my expectations. We had some fun tasting and then enjoyed lunch outside. There was a band playing close by while we sat and had our lunch. The food was excellent and the wine was too, of course.
After the winery we made our way in to Pittsburgh to our hotel. My hostesses arranged for us to spend the night in a beautiful suite right in the heart of the city. The room was decorated with touches of purple and gold...our wedding colors and some of my favorite things.
There were banners, lingerie, cupcakes, photo props and was so beautiful. I was so excited to see everything around the suite; it was beyond perfect. My Maid of Honor Nicole, bridesmaids and other friends went above and beyond to make sure it was all about Emelia.
We got ready while we jammed out to a customized playlist courtesy of one of my bridesmaids, Elisa and took some pictures before we left to meet the other ladies for dinner. I seriously felt like a Queen & loved every second of the day.
We met up with some more of the group for a delicious dinner at Sienna Mercato located in the Cultural District of Pittsburgh. Sienna Mercato is a multi-level building with a meatball joint, a pizzeria and a rooftop beer garden. We sat in the meatball level and it was pretty cool and had some tasty options.
They spoiled me with gifts and we took some more pictures of course. Duh, photo ops galore!
After dinner, it was time for my favorite part of the evening...the piano bar. We walked a few blocks to "Howl At The Moon" and had SUCH a fun time. We had a reserved table right next to the stage so we were at the center of all the excitement. There had to be about 7 other bachelorette parties there that evening, and it was such a great celebration.
They called us all up on stage a few times. I sang (more like rapped) and danced to "Baby Got Back", they played Britney, Madonna, and we all had the best time. The piano bar was definitely my favorite part of the night. I laughed so hard and loved being with all my best friends celebrating.
We spent a few hours at the piano bar and then took a taxi up to Mt. Washington to take some pictures. You can't spend a night in The 'Burgh without taking some pictures with the view of the city for a backdrop.
Our last stop of the night was at CAVO nightclub, and by that point we were all pretty spent. We enjoyed a few drinks there and then headed back to our suite.
My friends had my favorite late night snacks ready...french onion dip and chips, how cute are they?!
I couldn't believe how my bridesmaids went all out for me. I was brought to tears several times with the amount of love I received. I couldn't believe all the spoiling, gifts, special touches, and thoughtfulness throughout the weekend. From personalized playlists, beautiful decorations, that gorgeous purple and gold sash (the best one we saw all night) , the amazing gifts and all the attention...my weekend couldn't have been better. I am truly blessed to have such beautiful and caring friends and feel like the luckiest lady. I wish every weekend could be spent celebrating with my best friends.
Another HUGE thanks to my wonderful friends and family for making this an unforgettable experience and the best bachelorette weekend...I love you ladies!!
Only a few more weeks until my bridal shower when we get to continue the party!!
Enjoy your weekend friends, hope it's a beautiful one.
